Our curr is INR with 1 Cash acc in USD with balance as on 1 April with applicable exchange rate (65). Now Ex rate is 70. How to make BS reflect increased balance?

Our main currency is in INR. I have an account in USD that tracks some cash in USD currency. I created the account with some balance as on 1 April 2018 and applicable exchange rate of 65. Now the exchange rate has gone up to 70. The USD balance is the same. However, I now want the Balance Sheet to reflect the increased balance in INR as on 31 Dec 2018. What is the best way to achieve this? I difference should be booked in Foreign Exchange profit and Loss account.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
